Thoughts on this keyboard?

I was looking to replace my Logitech K120 (although it's great for a regular keyboard) with a mechanical one. I found this on Newegg for 50 dollars when it's normally 100 but there aren't a lot of reviews and I can't find much about it online.

Has anyone had personal experience with it or other ttesports keyboards? The price seems too good to pass up but I don't want to buy something on a whim and have it turn out poorly

for that price it seems ok, definitely would not pay anywhere near 100 for it though, seems like a normal keyboard with mechanical switches, no extras keys or backlighting.

Seems good for the price, with the -$40 code and -$10 rebate.

Yeah that's why I'm wondering if I should just wait and buy a better keyboard for more money later. My keyboard now isn't giving me any problems it just isn't mechanical.

I use one, it's great. Very sturdy. Has blacks though, which some people don't like.

The old model has all the reviews.

With the use of Fn, it essentially has media keys, so that seems like a pretty good deal (I personally use media keys quite often, so I always look for them). Also, Black switches are probably a safe choice when switching (no pun intended) to mechanical. Takes about the same amount of force to activate the key, but it's not as loud as some of the other switches and it should feel better than a rubber dome keyboard when pressing a key.

Steel Series Apex Keyboard just came out, pretty cool keyboard IMO.

If you are set on a mechanical keyboard this wouldn't be an option. I just went ahead and got a Blackwidow Ultimate to match my other accessories.

You couldn't pay me to use a keyboard that hideous.

I actually have that exact keyboard except mine is black. I got it refurbished from Microcenter for $60. It's pretty awesome and it as durable as a tank. I also like the wrist rest. The function keys are solid as long as you don't mind hitting the function key, and it being there means you won't hit the Windows key that is usually there while gaming.

A word of warning however, I suggest you actually use a keyboard with Cherry MX Black switches before taking the plunge on this guy. I like them, but A LOT of people do not. So if you can go somewhere and try one out that would be a good move.
